See Something Say Something?
Everybody knows in post 911 “If You See Something, Say Something.” Taking that action has actually saved lives over the last decade; just as missing that something has cost lives. It’s really good advise in times of war.

Campaign - See Something Say Something

But… from the lefts perspective we’re not at war. So what do you do with the advise given above.

You do what is in the nature of liberalism to do. You fake it. You give it lip service. Then you wink and nod and offer secret handshakes when in the exclusive company of your own. That’s when you condescendingly explain to your fellow liberals the clinging to religion and guns mentality of the unwashed.

Finally you watch for opportunity to tear down the hated things society forces you to pretend to love or support; and if you can manufacture such opportunity, so much the better. For the left, appearance, words, and intentions trump reality and actual results.

It’s funny, but that mentality is very Islamic. Lying and deceit are perfectly fine with Allah when dealing with infidels; as long as the deceit serves Allah (and his prophet I suppose). Replace Allah with the god of liberalism and… there you go.

So when it comes to “If You See Something, Say Something”, Liberalism and Islam-ism have a common enemy; though (at least here in the U.S.) neither can admit it. They can however attack and subvert the foundation of the idea when the opportunity arises. This is done through the cudgels of race-hustling, grievance-mongering, and political correctness.

Cue the Opportunity and Hell to Pay:
As we’ve probably all heard by now, Ahmed Mohamed is an inquisitive, electrically proficient, ninth grade youth living and going to school in Irving Texas. All of the above (except for the inquisitive part) are skills in high demand to men who share one or both of the kids given names.

This Mensa “genius” as described by every meat-head reporter doing a puff-piece… recently took a backpack full of circuit boards and wires to school. It took two teachers and an alarm beeping from his backpack before enough was seen and something said.

Ahmed and Clock

And just so we’re clear here in the terms of the left and the Islamists. “See Something, Say Something” is fine. Just understand this. If you do, you had better be right; OR if you’re wrong, it had better be about a Caucasian male. Otherwise there will be hell to pay.

Ahmed was detained, questioned, and released to his parents… Ohhh the humanity. The real error in all of this is that it took a second teacher and an alarm in the middle of class to achieve this result.

Campaign - See Something Say Something - Malard

Cue the Islamic Stench:
Setting that important detail aside… let me take this one step further. This story of this whole scenario stinks to high heaven. Here are a few whiffs to consider.

First Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed (father to Ahmed), isn’t just some mild mannered immigrant now caught up in an innocent feel-good Muslim victim news story. He “occasionally” returns to Sudan (where he came from) to run for president. Yeah… normal people do that all the time. And remember that nut in Florida burning the Qurans? This Mohamed is the Mohamed who made national headlines debating him.

Second, CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) and it’s lawyers got real involved real quick. These are the terrorist supporting community organizers constantly stirring up trouble where ever they can. CAIRs message here is crystal clear. If “See Something… Keep Your Dam Mouth Shut If It Involves a Muslim or You Will Be Branded as a Racist Islamophobic Bastard!”

CAIR - Clocks

Thirdly, there is the just plain old common sense factor. Nobody (much less a genius as he is depicted) is so void of common sense as to believe a backpack full of circuit boards, wires and maybe a clock display taken to a school is anything other than asking… begging even… for trouble.

Ahmed - Dumbass or Liar

But Ahmed, his parents, and the left would have us believe that this little “genius” would just as innocently try to pass this through White House security and claim… “It’s just a clock… no it doesn’t look like a bomb to me…” Also imagine the reaction of Obama’s security detail to such a device. Ahmed has been invited to White House by the panderer in Chief. Might I suggest to the family that they show up a little early for a tour of the visitor center (without giving Barry a heads-up) and don’t forget the clock. 🙂 You want to see a reaction? You want to see a few guns drawn? And this way the whole family could be involved.

My point… the suspension of disbelief from journalists, the left, and Islamic apologist (on such a national scale) is phenomenal here. But logic and reality have never been their strong points.

Finally, when told by his first teacher (the science guy) NOT to show this to anyone else. What did our innocent little genius Mohamed do? He didn’t turn it off. He didn’t stash it in a locker. No, he stuffed it in a backpack and had an alarm go off in English class. THEN… instead of just turning off the alarm… he yanks it out and does exactly what he was warned not to do. Show it to another teacher.

That is when he got the reaction he (as instructed by dear old dad) was looking for; someone seeing something and saying something… and the proper recourse that comes with it.

That’s right. I’m saying this sh#t was orchestrated by Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed and carried out by his son Ahmed Mohamed. And it worked. It got the leftist reaction they were looking for AND the Islamic reaction they were looking for (via CAIR). It would not surprise me if CAIR (at some level) was involved from the beginning as well.

This has the stink of lying and deceit directed at infidels for the benefit of Allah all over it. see Lying (Taqiyya and Kitman) And who can blame them? Misdirection and deceit have the blessing of Allah (and his prophet, Allah bless him and protect him and blah blah blah).

Allah’s Reward:
For his reward, Ahmed now has the admiration of the President (not to mention a White House visit), various leftist politicians and business leaders (invites from Google, Twitter). Ahmed is the bell of the liberal ball. CAIR (and their lawyers) have formed a circle around the family ready to milk this for all the propaganda (and dollars) it’s worth.

And finally, there is the Main Stream media. “The story immediately became ubiquitous not because of what actually happened, but because it can be used to further a story that the media already want to tell: that the United States is morally corrupt and irredeemably racist; that Muslims are under siege; that “white privilege” blinds the majority of Americans to the corruption at the heart of everything red, white, and blue.” (Kevin Williamson, National Review)

Looking for a More Inclusive School:
Conveniently, the Mohameds have decided Ahmed will find a more “inclusive” institution to continue his education. I submit that decision was made by father, son, and family some time ago. I have a few suggestion… all of them outside of Texas, most of them in Sudan.

Kitchen - Egg Timer - About to Go OffAs we reflect on the (hopefully) final ticking seconds off Wendy Davis’ fifteen minutes of fame; she exposes us to a common but persistent trait of the liberal mindset. Asked if she regrets anything concerning he failed campaign for Texas Governor, Wendy said “There is one thing that I would do differently in that campaign and it relates to the position that I took on open carry… I made a quick decision on that with a very short conversation with my team and it wasn’t really in keeping with what I think is the correct position on that issue… Though I certainly support people’s right to own and to bear arms in appropriate situations, I fear with open carry, having watched that issue unfold during the campaign, that it will be used to intimidate and cause fear. And this was the only time I felt like I’d strayed a bit from that.” Leftist politicians must often lie to hide who they really are in order to be viably electable. But then once the election is over (win or lose) they fret that their progressive credentials may be damaged in the eyes of their comrades. They panic and reveal the lie using the excuses of evolving, or being misunderstood. The really good practitioners of the leftist arts tell us they never changed at all, but rather it was us (the unwashed) who were too stupid to understand what they were really saying. People - Davis, Wendy - Texas Governor Candidate 2013 - 003

In Wendy’s case it was a decision she and (more importantly) her team got wrong. Wendy Davis really didn’t support open carry before or after the “short conversation with [her]team”. She knew it. Her team knew it. In that meeting they didn’t decide after careful consideration that they supported the issue, but rather that they would lie about their support of the issue for political expediency. Now since that lie didn’t pay any dividends and the election is over Wendy feels she can safely take a swipe at the second amendment and it’s supporters (who had the gall to not be fooled by her lie). Her coming clean is also meant to reassure her leftist comrades that she was and is still in their camp. Also notice Wendy’s statement that she supports the second amendment “in appropriate situations”. While this may be true in her mind, she intentionally makes a point to omit the details of “appropriate situations”. It’s another lie wrapped in semantics, and Wendy like much of the left is an artists when it comes to this practice. I assure you that the “appropriate situations” are not the freedoms we enjoy today. Yet she conveniently never found the opportunity to verbalize those situations in the campaign (a lie of omission). Given a chance (the Governorship) Wendy would have moved Texas forward with her un-verbalized appropriate leftist restrictions.

But, alas, this is Texas. Unfortunately not all politicians of Wendy’s sort are limited by Texas’ common sense. Thus… you can keep you doctor, until it’s obvious you can’t; you support the sanctity of marriage, until the polls swing your way; you support the pipeline, as long as you never have to actually vote on it; you want the greatest military in the world, as you gut it behind the scenes…

Sign - Left Turn OnlyThe point is, leftist often support issues key to our Constitution, freedom, and social fabric… until they evolve, or reevaluate, or whatever liberals do. It’s a way of sitting in the middle of the road (with you right-hand blinker on) until circumstances or opportunity compel you to turn left. In truth a progressive never supports these issues from the beginning. They were always going to turn left, but choose to subversively undermine hated issues and polices while misleading the public on their true stance. BUT when the undermining is complete (or in Wendy’s case ineffective), they are free (even compelled) to reveal their true colors. On behalf of those who really do support the Second Amendment (and freedom, and the social fabric, and the rest of the Constitution) I would like to thank Wendy Davis to affirming our suspicions. It’s good to know the leftist bull-sh!t meter is still working just fine. Now, Wendy Davis; please… go away… 14:56… 57… 58… 59… 🙂

People - Obama, Barack - Mickey Mouse Ears* Much of this post borrows heavily from an op-ed by Peter Baker in the NYT (see A President Whose Assurances Have Come Back to Haunt Him)

President Obama will address the nation tonight (Wed 9/10/2014) to explain his plan (he has one now) to defeat Islamic extremists in Iraq and Syria.

    A couple of questions we should ask ourselves include:

  • Will he refer to ISIS/ISIL as the “JV team” again?
  • Will he describe Iraq as any of the following: “sovereign”, “stable”, “self-reliant”, or “representative”?
  • Will he say that under his leadership that “the tide of war is receding”.

No, he probably won’t. But he has said these things before and these very words are the evidence of the biggest problem this nation faces today.

While is it obvious that Obama, and his administration, are not adverse to pushing absurdly obvious lies; even they don’t believe they could pull off spinning those statements today (though they took a stab at one recently). The world is on fire around them, and people are starting to notice (though about four or fives years too late).

Perhaps what we saw a few days ago was a trial balloon floated by the White House to see what they could get away with. White House mouthpiece, Josh Earnest, said that Obama’s reference to “JV team” was not specifically directed at ISIS/ISIL. Obama said the same thing on “Meet the Press”. Even the likes of the ultra-leftist Washington Post and New York Times admit this is an out-and-out lie. (Spinning Obama’s reference to Islamic State as a ‘JV’ team)

“To Mr. Obama’s critics, the disparity between the president’s previous statements and today’s reality reflects not simply poorly chosen words but a fundamentally misguided view of the world. Rather than clearly see the persistent dangers as the United States approaches the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, they said, Mr. Obama perpetually imagines a world as he wishes it were.” — Peter Baker, NYT

And we would be right. An article in the Weekly Standard a few weeks ago explained how Obama’s world-view evolved. Obama grew up and came of age during the end of the Cold War. He bought into the leftist idea of appeasement as the way to go when dealing with likes of Russia during the Cold War. Thus he was appalled by Reagan challenging our adversaries through strength. Decades later it is obvious that Reagan was right and Obama (and the whole left for that matter) wrong. But Obama still doesn’t realize that though he more than anyone (through is policies) have proven Reagan to be even more right than anyone imagined.

“I don’t think it is just loose talk, I think it’s actually revealing talk. Sometimes words are mistakes; they’re just poorly put. But sometimes they’re a manifestation of one’s deep belief in the world and that’s what you really get with President Obama.” — Peter H. Wehner, a former adviser to President George W. Bush now at the Ethics and Public Policy Center

People - Obama, Barack - Pussy - GolfHis words are simply a reflection of the man. He has no clue as to the nature of the world, or the nature of the evil men now running amok (due largely to his policies). Worse still he has no idea (or even much interest) in how to deal with and stop such men.

I will say it again. We have a “JV” problem; but it not a JV terrorist organization, but rather the current JV president dealing with them. (My apologies to JV teams everywhere for the slight.) Barack Hussein Obama is and always has been in over his head; a JV player who thinks he is Michael Jordan; an incompetent boob. What few things he has accomplished have been to the detriment of the nation, socially, policy, and fiscally. And while accomplishing these things he has ignored or worse bungled the important issues affecting our very safety and eventual survival. (If we get through his presidency without another major 911 type attack on our home soil, I’ll be surprised.)

Right now Obama is pissed that these guys, these distractions, have interfered with his important work of “fundamentally changing” this unfair, overly influential, racist at heart, nation. While he has accomplished much (some would call it damage); it was but a fraction of what he had intended from the beginning (2008). 2010 stymied much of those plans; hopefully 2014 will put will end to them once and for all.

Politicians and especially presidents are always sending messages. Some are mean to mislead, a few are meant to inform. Some are meant for American consumption, some are meant for foreign nationals. And often the messages being sent to various groups contradict each other. Obama (as are most successful Democrats) are masters of this art. (*See pissing on your leg and telling you it’s raining.)

Unfortunately for the practitioners of this art (and fortunately for their marks), when abused, the ability to have one message completely ignored or both contradicting messages simultaneously believed is compromised.

Thus Obama’s messages on amnesty directed to illegal immigrants and future democratic voters and Obama’s messages directed at American serfs…

Political - Left - Class WarfareIn his latest attack of the Koch Brothers, Harry Reid said the following.

“The decisions by the Supreme Court have left the American people with the status quo in which one side’s billionaires are pitted against the other side’s billionaires. Except one side doesn’t have any* billionaires.”

Setting aside this is just more of the same old class warfare play run by the left again and again… the statement is categorically false.

To name a few just off the top of my head: George Soros, Tom Seyer, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Fidel Castro… 🙂

As I stated in a previous postings comment section…

One indication of the absurdity and of just how good the leftist spin of the MSM (Main Stream Media) is concerning the money behind politics…. If asked, much of the public would name the Koch Brothers as the #1 political contributors in the nation. They’re not. They’re not even in the top ten; and barely make the top 50, being somewhere in the mid-40s. A large majority of those ahead of them are… wait for it… leftist and Democrat. A majority of the top ten… are… wait for it… unions; who pretty well split their money evenly between the GOP and Democrats… … 🙂 [Bwa ha ha]… just kidding practically all goes to Democrats. Overall, unions beat the Koch Bros by a margin of about 15 to 1.

For the left, it’s all about appearances… Harry Reid is just repeating the same lie over, and over, and over, Ad Nauseam. He knows it’s a lie, but he’s still following the script, following the plan. And I admit, that game plan largely works for them. Their system depends on an uninformed public and that is practically the definition of America today. It’s also one of the many reasons the Republic is doomed.

*Note: When the obvious exaggeration, gaffe, or lie was exposed the Dems immediately went into spin mode and claimed, that Reid said “many” not “any”. Having listened to the remarks… that is clearly not true.

Hillary’s out and about on a book tour, aka testing the waters for her 2016 campaign. I actually have my doubts she’ll run; which pretty well means she will; since I’m more often wrong about these things than not. My money’s on Joe. 🙂

Hillary recently made the outrageous claim (from the book) that she and Bill were broke when they left the White House; clawing their way back to solvency and prosperity. I’m sure that’s not the only one (wild-@ass claim) from the book. This is just a lie intended to portray the Clintons as just regular folks with the same problems as the rest of us. It has all the substance of Michelle Obama shopping at Target.

Obama has royally screwed the pooch when it comes to just about everything Presidential (economy, foreign policy, surrender, etc.) and Hillary played a key role in the incompetence.

If Hillary does run, a perfect campaign slogan would be, “Hillary 2016 because What difference, at this point, does it make!” (from Robert Ariail).

People - Clinton, Hillary - At This Point

Main Stream Media - Bias - Bet Your Sweet AssSuspending Disbelief:
State Department spokesman Jen Psaki was actually mocked by the press on Thursday (5/29/14) after saying “[President Obama] doesn’t give himself enough credit for what he’s done around the world.”

Some would say this (laughter at that statement) is proof that the main stream media isn’t biased after all. They, of course, would still be wrong. There is, after all, a difference between being biased and being blind. What this really shows is frustration on the part of the press in doing their jobs… which is selling the liberal narrative that all is well thanks to Obama. When things are as bad as they are in foreign policy (and just about everything else) the people can only be led to suspend disbelief so much or for so long.

This also falls right in with the departure of Press Secretary Jay Carney. Imagine having the job of pushing this crap day in and day out. One has to ask “Do they put your soul in a jar for safe keeping while you do that job? Do you ever feel clean again?” Sure all press secretaries have to shovel crap to some extent. And chalk it up to partisanship; but I say the degree and volume dished out by the Obama Administration is well above and beyond what we’ve seen in the past (from any administration). There is little equivalency here; and of course the Republican Administrations have the excuse of actually being challenged by the press.

Examples:
Political Cartoon - 2014 05 00 - Benghazi EmailsFor Example: The Administration releases emails from the White House that specifically instructed Susan Rice to lie on the Sunday talk shows concerning Benghazi. This only happened after a judge ordered the release of all emails involving Benghazi because of a “Freedom of Information Act” ruling. Jay’s spin? Oh… THAT email wasn’t about Benghazi… (all said with a straight face). To which a reporters ask “Then why did you release it as part of a court order to release Benghazi related emails?” To which Jay acts befuddled and repeats “That email wasn’t about Benghazi…” It’s the art of repeatedly pissing on someone and telling them it’s raining with a straight face. Normally the media doesn’t mind this from a leftist administration… but the public is increasingly noticing that they’re all wet (and stinky)… and that’s a problem when credibility has some effect on the bottom line.

OK One More: Any release of prisoners from Guantanamo Bay requires 30 days’ notice to Congress. It’s the Law. It’s the law passed by a Democratic controlled Senate and singed by Obama himself. Obama actually complied with the law in the past concerning some of the same prisoners but abandoned the idea when he got pushback (from Democrats, Republicans, and the military). Setting aside the wisdom or logic of the decisions, with the swap for Bowe Bergdahl, Obama decided not to follow the law?

Why? Was it A) Because time was of the essence (Bergdahl was sick) B) Because they has re-interpreted the law and decided it didn’t apply here OR C) They decided they couldn’t trust Congress with the information? If you answered D) All of the above you are correct. Various statements from various people at the White House have given all three as the reason for ignoring the law. It’s like these pople just throw crap against the wall to see what will stick.

People - Obama, Barack - Mickey Mouse Ears

    This is but the latest debacle to demonstrate the overwhelming characteristics of President Barack Obama and by extension his administration:

  1. No respect for the rule of law. The rules and the law just don’t apply to this President.
  2. The propensity to lie all the time. These people would rather climb a tree to shout a lie when standing on solid ground and telling the truth would suit them better.
  3. No adult supervision. This administration can’t even coordinate its message/lies; which points back to amateurishness, incompetence, and a lack of engagement.

Again & Again & Again…
Meanwhile, this process of stating absurdity as fact (with a straight face) is repeated again… and again… and again… on every issue and scandal imaginable from the Obama Administration; Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS Political Targeting, Foreign Policy, The Economy, The Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap…

It is well past time for the Obama Administration be called out on the absurdities they spout as answers to legitimate questions (no matter the source of the questions). Unfortunately, with the state of journalism today; it may be up to History to do that.
